My love for pizza started in elementary school. Every Friday our cafeteria would serve French bread pizza. I thought it was the most amazing thing ever. It was cheesy, saucy, and oh so tasty. The crust was sturdy enough for me to hold the entire pizza in my little hands. I’d often return home with a joker-like stain of tomato sauce around my mouth. I was a voracious and messy eater. You should have seen my face on Sloppy Joe lunch days.
Forget the frozen French bread pizzas of high school and college years. It’s unbelievably easy to make French bread pizza at home using store-bought French bread (or Italian bread, or whatever soft loaf of bread your market sells). Using the broiler setting of your oven, it only takes minutes to have a hot, bubbling, saucy French bread pizza in your hands.
